$685,000 Personal Injury & Workers’ Compensation Settlement

Settlement: $685,000

Attorney: Gene Riddle

Our client sustained a compensable injury to his head, neck, back, arms, chest, and shoulders, when a load of lumber was dropped on him by a third party while he was making a delivery in a warehouse. His injuries were severe and the cost of his medical treatment was astronomical. The workers’ compensation carrier paid all medical bills which exceeded several hundred thousand dollars and paid all wage loss until the date of settlement. Our client brought in North Carolina personal injury and workers’ comp attorney Gene Riddle to seek maximum compensation in the case.

Riddle and Brantley successfully settled the third party claim for $685,000 in additional compensation beyond what the workers’ compensation carrier paid.  The workers’ compensation carrier paid an additional annuity of $6,000 per year for a period of 33 years and waived its entire lien on the third party settlement.
